The joy of rapidly changing software is that if your doing it right today there is a high likely hood your doing it wrong tomorrow. Well that is one way to look at it, or you could just say “I am doing what works for me”. When I started using Opscode chef one of the things that really stood out to me was a stage conversation between Luke and Adam. Summary of that conversation as Luke stated if you don’t do it the defined way your doing it wrong, to which Adam replied unless you need to do it another way. That has pretty much summed up my whole approach and might have some part of why I enjoy chef so much and why Adam is a great front man. Nothing technical here but that is one thing to keep in mind when your working on a new chef deploy, there are best practices but they are not always right for your instance. Just a few mumblings as I explore the move away from roles, which I agree makes sense but I have 4 years of using roles history I have to refactor.
